What's the Difference Between Buying the 2022 Version and Buying 2022 Annual Updates?
"Why would I pay for 2022 annual updates when the 2022 version hasn't come out yet?" It's definitely a fair question. Many times CAM technicians and lab owners assume they are paying for a particular version of the software when they purchase annual updates. For example, right now it's February 2022, should I wait till later in the year when the 2022 version is released to purchase 2022 annual updates? The answer may surprise you... No. We don't technically sell versions of MillBox. We sell access to the latest version which we call Annual Updates.
Many software companies wait until a big release date or a new version to introduce all their new features and new strategies. CIMsystem takes a different approach, a much more user-friendly approach. We provide updates every single week and don't hold back the best features for an annual release. We sell our software updates in the form of annual access. You purchase once a year, but you have access all throughout the year to update as many times as you'd like from January 1st to December 31st.
With this release strategy, you're getting so much more than the latest version. With your annual updates purchase you are gaining access to update as often as you need/desire all throughout the year. These updates keep your production stable [by keeping up with automatic Windows updates], enhance the software with new features and optimizations, and get you the latest strategy improvements from around the world. Once we release the 2022 version it is certainly one of the updates you can do, but it's not the only update you'll want in 2022. It's best to purchase your access to updates early in the year and update often [once a month or perhaps once a quarter] so you benefit all throughout the year. This approach allows you to receive CAM enhancements before and after the latest version is released.
Conclusion: No need to wait for the 2022 Version of MillBox. Contact your dealer today to purchase Annual Updates so you have access all throughout the year.
